Blogging; A few tips for beginners ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ“

So by no means am I the best blogger, or the most successful but I do have a few tips for some beginners. I wish I had known a few of these when I first started myself.

First tip; Make friends ๐Ÿ‘ญ

I honestly wish I had chatted to people earlier on & been a little more confident with getting my blog out there. I have made some of the best friends because of my blog. I set up a whatsapp group a few months back full of some lovely blogger girls & just girls who love to chat with us all. They love being supportive & reading my blog, as I do theirs too.

Second tip; be confident ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿฝ

I think I had my blog hidden from people I knew for the first 6 months, which to me seems silly now. This meant I didn’t really put it on any social media! You need to be confident & love what you are writing. Trust me the blogging community is huge so there will always be someone who loves your blog. Also sharing it on social media has done me the world of good! These are my stats, you can see the growth ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ I started blogging November 2016 & we are now August 2018. I am almost at the same amount of views for what I had the whole of 2017.


Third tip; drafts ๐Ÿ“

I swear by making a draft every time a good idea pops into my head! I literally just write a sentence or a few words that will help remind me what it was that I was wanting to write about. This has helped me sooo much, it means I will always have a blog post in mind & don’t need to worry too much about writers block. At the minute I have 29 drafts ๐Ÿ˜‚ 

Fourth tip; do what you love ๐Ÿ’ž

There are a lot of different things that happen in the blogging community. Just know that if you don’t want to join in you don’t have to. Join in on the things you love! By this I mean, there tends to be a lot of posts about ‘blogger awards’ which are just like tags, so you answer the questions etc. If you love the idea it can help you grow, but if you don’t love it then just find what you do love? If that makes sense ๐Ÿ™ˆ I personally love getting involved in Blogmas! 

Fifth tip; photos ๐Ÿ“ธ

I find a lot of my blog posts do really well if the photos are enticing. If they don’t grab someone’s attention, then sometimes the post doesn’t do so well. I absolutely love getting the photos for my posts, it’s my favourite part! But honestly my photos used to be pretty terrible, it takes time to get the hang of it all, I mean look at the difference in these…


I hope this was helpful for people โ˜บ๏ธ

  1. I absolutely agree with all of your points. I myself kinda regret not communicating with fellow bloggers before when I started my blog. Nonetheless, I am happy seeing a lot of bloggers supporting each other. Great post!

  4. Thank you! I have so many things I want to blog about but at the same time I’m really nervous still. I even made blogged about holding myself back. I’m really new to all of this so it is definitely a working progress but posts like this are really encouraging. Good luck!

  5. Thank you so much for sharing! Iโ€™m a new blogger and donโ€™t get very many views. Could you possibly do another post about making blogger friends? I tried to reach other to other gals a few times and had really mixed reactions๐Ÿ˜ณ Iโ€™m having a lot of fun writing and posting so far and donโ€™t want to get discouraged
